The humorous art of Erwin Wurm has many fans worldwide. This extensive volume presents a large variety of his works from the past ten years.
Austrian artist Erwin Wurm has gained an international reputation for challenging traditional notions of sculpture, photography, performance art, and drawing. His classic One Minute Sculptures invite audiences to participate in the creation of temporary sculpture by combining their bodies with a variety of common objects according to the artist's instructional drawings. Erwin Wurm: I Love My Time, I Don't Like My Time, a comprehensive survey, highlights more than ten years of production. It includes staged situations for the creation of selected One Minute Sculptures; the photo series Instructions for Idleness (2001); Instructions on How to be Politically Incorrect (2002-03); Thinking About Philosophers (2002-04), and Hotel Rooms (2001); along with a selection of videos such as 59 Positions (1992), Flight Simulator (1998), and Adelphi Sculptures (1999). The centerpiece is the Fat House/I Love My Time, I Don't Like My Time (2003), the latest in Wurm's Fat series that explores the wild and dark potential of digital animation.
